The Amniostat Immunologic Slide test detects the presence of phosphatidylglycerol (PG) that occurs in pregnancies complicated by diabetes. This paper reports on the performance of this test against other methods that determine the presence of fetal lung maturity.
OBJECTIVE We analyzed the incidence of bradycardia and the safety of patients with severely calcified coronary lesions who underwent orbital atherectomy without the insertion of a temporary pacemaker. BACKGROUND The presence of severely calcified coronary lesions can increase the complexity of percutaneous coronary intervention due to the difficulty in(More)
This is a case report of a 16-year-old girl with renal failure in pregnancy in association with bilateral ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis. The presenting symptom was a common nonspecific type of abdominal pain. The diagnosis was made on incidental laboratory work to rule out preeclampsia. Renal function reverted back to normal after induced vaginal(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The aims of our study were to determine whether routine blood tests, the aspartate aminotransferase (AST) to Platelet Ratio Index (APRI) and Fibrosis 4 (Fib-4) scores, were associated with advanced fibrosis and to create a novel model in liver transplant recipients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV). METHODS We performed a cross(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the feasibility and safety of the "single-operator" technique in which the operator autonomously advanced the orbital atherectomy (OA) device while maintaining wire position. BACKGROUND Severe coronary artery calcification (CAC) increases the complexity of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and is associated with lower(More)
Topical beta-blocking agents have been associated with adverse central nervous system (CNS) effects, including depression, emotional lability, and sexual dysfunction. Two studies were done to determine if patients who develop CNS effects while using timolol maleate would improve with betaxolol hydrochloride. In one study, 18 patients with CNS symptoms(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the angiographic and clinical outcomes of orbital atherectomy to treat severely calcified coronary lesions in diabetic and non-diabetic patients. BACKGROUND Diabetics have increased risk for death, myocardial infarction, and target vessel revascularization after percutaneous coronary intervention. Severely calcified coronary(More)
